Carrot Cake Muffin Recipe
(see below for cookies)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 cup quinoa flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg
3 tablespoons oil (most kinds will be fine)
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 cup honey
1 cup shredded carrots (about 3 large carrots)
1/3 cup raisins

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a muffin tin with papers (makes 6-7 muffins). This recipe might work out fine to oil the muffin tins instead of paper but I didn’t test that.

Combine the dry ingredients.

Combine the wet ingredients.

Mix the wet and dry together and add the carrots and raisins.

Scoop 1/4 cup of batter into each prepared muffin cup.

Bake for about 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the tin to cooling rack immediately so that the papers don’t get soggy.

* We enjoy these as muffins without frosting. I did frost them for the photo shoot and as a special treat, but there is no specific recipe for the frosting.

Vegan Carrot Cookie Recipe
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 tablespoon flax meal with 2 tablespoons water (or 1 egg for non-vegan)
1/2 cup quinoa flour
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3 tablespoons oil (most kinds will be fine)
1/4 cup raw agave nectar (or honey for non-vegan)
1/2 cup finely grated carrots (about 2 carrots)
1/3-1/2 cup raisins

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the flax and water and set aside.

Combine the dry ingredients.

Combine the wet ingredients, including the flax.

Mix the wet and dry together and add the carrots and raisins.

Place spoonful-dolops of cookie batter on the baking sheet. (These don’t spread so you can place them close together.)

Bake for about 12 minutes (keep an eye on them to be sure the bottoms don’t get overcooked).  Set them out on a cooling rack.

Enjoy!

Makes about 16 cookies.

    • Thank you Amber. I am so glad you love it! (The post and the book.)

      So sad about the link. I have only been using WordPress for a few months and who knows what happened? But since the emails are already sent there is nothing I can do until next post. Hopefully everyone will figure it out.
